SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – No, Spring Lake Park was not the site of the latest Oscar Ceremony. The Park played host to the South Plainfield 2016 Prom. Yes, the scene was full of guys and dolls adorned with beautiful gowns, handsome suits and a lot of reminiscing.

After pictures the guys and dolls left for an evening of dinner and dancing on the water in Perth Amboy.

For many parents, the 2016 prom was just another reminder that their seniors will be graduating high school and leaving for college in the fall.

Next Friday these same seniors who were seen off to prom will be embarking on the next chapter of their lives when they receive their South Plainfield High School Class of 2016 diplomas.

If you have photos you would like included, of promproposals, pre-prom, during prom, post-prom and any well wishes or quotes, email them to dcullen@tapinto.net
